    Got tricky + RL = slow going. Will try to play some more tomorrow, but that will be it, as I'm going out of town Tuesday.

    IBT: GK advances a K and a cat mindlessly

    T113: Eliminate K and cat; Get GG and move him into Pig City for experience; advance and begin bombardment of Karakorum

    IBT: Spy destroys mine in Boston

    T114: Trade Lit to Joao for 210 gold

    IBT: A WE(?!!) and 2 more Ks show up 1W of Kara, plus additional axe and cat appear in city

    T115: Lose cat and spear to kill WE and 2 Ks; bombard and advance

    IBT: Uneventful

    T116: Take Kara with loss of 3 cats and a sword (rng a bit irritating)

    Will research Education IBT. What do we want from Mansa for it? Do we want to also trade it to Gandhi for Machinery?

    Looks like a good job so far.

    I'd take that. :D

    Do we want Liberalism? And we're going to win how? :deadhorse:

    Looking good CP :goodjob:

    So we got MC + 110 g for Music :king:

    I like Pig City :D - keep the cats coming! ;)

    Did the scout see any fighting in India?
    What kind of units were stationed in Coimbra?

    Let's get the forges up and running :)

    How about NE in Capital?

    Gpt trades.... :mischief:

    If we want Lib, we should wait. Let's see what he offers to get an estimate of how close he is to researching it himself. :)
    I don't think we can trade it to Gandhi, he does not have the prerequisite techs :crazyeye:

    "Do we want Liberalism? And we're going to win how?" Good and critical questions. RL is closing in, so I'm just going to play one more turn and leave these decisions and trading to the team and the next player.

    Ah, yes.

    Playing in about an hour.

    War going satisfactorily, but, otherwise, not great news:

    IBT: Gandhi makes peace with Joao; lose our scout to a wandering Mongol spear; ED>LIB(?)

    T117: Mansa says he has nothing to gain from Education; note that Coimbra is defended by 1 archer, 2 axes, and a cat, while Lagos has a spear, an axe, and an archer

    Notes:

    Suggest next turn chariot near Tabriz first moves 1NW to see what is in city, before moving units. Prioritize either taking the city or pillaging ivory.

    We are now Friendly with Mansa. Will that make him more responsive to our solicitations?

    No intel on GK's units other than what is visible now.

    Save from Central: http://gotm.civfanatics.net/download.php?file=Xteam_SG018_AD0050_01.CivBeyondSwordSave

    Will be out of town and out of touch for about 36 hours.

    Research: Feudalism at 0%, don’t think we can beat Mansa to Lib :sad:

    Washington: Worker-Missionary (for Kara)-Forge-NE
    Fish City: Worker-Forge-Archer
    Pig City: Cats
    New York: Chariot-Forge-Axe
    Boston: Barracks-Forge-Cat
    Beshbalik: Granary-Forge-Missionary
    Samarqand: Forge-Granary-
    Karakorum: Forge-Granary

    Trade fur to Mansa for 3gpt
    Trade corn to Gandhi for 2gpt

    Dr Evil’s got a raised fist, is he thinking of us again….? :mischief:

    Take Tabriz, Old Sarai and Turfan and then consider peace with GK :hammer:

    Thought we were going to build NE in Beshbalik in order to run Artists free of the GL's Scientist points?

    Dr. Evil is, well, :evil:

    Apparently, I was too soon with declaring my comp fixed again. I can open civ games right now, but the game crashes after a couple of minutes (haven't loaded up this game yet, so no worries there). So I'm going to try and fix it tomorrow.


    In the meantime, I'm having a hard time picturing the status of our game, so I can't really contribute with comments either.

    I must have missed that post. :p

    If that's what we decided then fine let's go for it and tech/act/build accordingly.

    Diplo is the fastest.

    We have nothing to loose by hoarding gold and wait to see if we can bulb Lib just in time. It is likely that Mansa Part bulbed Edu and see no reason to finish it.

    My current concern is the requirement to switch free religion. It is fine for Diplo win but will hurt culture game a bit. It is better to have a state religion for culture. It can be done either way. If we are going to space then it is great.

    I suspected I wouldn't be the only who hadn't received the message clearly. ;)

    Agree!

    I'll continue the war against GK in about 20 hours, researching at 0% :)
